michael-brun-two-fresh-mobile-wip-1

We’re excited to bring you endlessly fun mixes this weekend from Michael Brun, whose put together a special Haitian mix, and dynamic duo hip-hop production duo Two Fresh! The 22 year old DJ/producer Michael Brun was born in Port-au-Preince, Haiti and later moved to the USA to attend Davidson College (for pre-med) in North Carolina. He’s been championed both by his streaming numbers, fans and record sales for his ability to blend together several dance music genres with Haitian styles including kompa, rare and more. Also the head of his own label Kid Coconut, Michael’s long list of supporters and collaborators includes Dirty South, Hardwell, Avicii, Childish Gambino and more. Originally from Nashville, TN, Two Fresh is comprised of twin bros Sherwyn & Kenrick Nicholls. They first grew to popularity after releasing a series of tracks that harped on a nostalgic early 90s hip-hop vibe, which set the foundation for their future works as well. Two Fresh, now based in Los Angeles, CA, has toured with the likes of Skrillex, 12th Planet, Bassnectar and more in addition to performing at several top tier festivals around the country.

Daktyl – Forgettable (feat. Evan Mellows) [Fan Video]

Director Sayer Danforth (D4pictures.com) offers a spectacular rendition of Daktyl’s track “Forgettable (feat. Evan Mellows)” in his own fan video. Featuring dancer and little sister May Danforth, Mya provides graceful movement in otherwise static places. She makes each faded, forgotten venue beautiful through both movement and Daktyl’s lulling music. While the song at its core is about slowly forgetting someone, her visual interpretation proposes a new meaning: forgetting can be liberating.

Click here to check out the official premiere on Mass Appeal!

Singer, songwriter, producer, artist and nobleman Rudi Zygadlo has seemingly endless auditory tricks up his sleeve. We first linked up with him for our dubstep compilation back in 2010. Since then, he’s been remixing and producing for huge artists and releasing original tunes on his own. “Slow Carz” is what we envision real pop music should be. Emotional, production-heavy, but still raw. Headphone material for you and your lover to daisy chain to.

Additional production/mixing by William Arcane
